Check your stitch length regulator is not set on zero.

Remove the needleplate and clean out any lint from between teeth of feeddogs......while you are at it, clean around the bobbin area and remove any lint under bobbin case.

The 1130 does not have a consumer adjustable presser foot. Check to be sure you are using the correct presser foot .Some feet are slightly different in height which is how the pressure is regulated. If this is not your problem it will need to be seen by a technician.

It probably needs gears replaced or has a loose gear. Unfortunately you need to take it in to a repair shop. (I am assuming that you are not in button hole or have the stitch length set to zero).
good luck!

SOURCE: singer stylist sewing machine 534 is not stitching

Feed dog drive gear(2) are plastic and are probably stripped. Always replace them in pairs. While you are at it replace both hook drive gears as well. It will run as good as new.

I have a new ruby sewing machine the material will not pass under the foot. The needle just goes up and down in one spot


Make sure the stitch length is set high enough to actually move the fabric. Also check that the feed dogs are actually moving forward and backward when stitching (they should move from front to back, then drop below the needle plate and move to the front, where they rise again,)..

The feed dog on my bernina 1130 is not working. IT will not pull the fabric.


Even if you select a longer stitch? Have the feed dogs been dropped for darning? Otherwise, your mechanical machine may be seizing due to old oil that has solidified.


Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...

Singer model 518....the material won't feed through.It wants to sew but won't feed cloth through. Thks


Be sure you have the stitch length set high enough that the fabric will actually move instead of sewing mostly in one spot.

One other thing to check is the presser foot applying enough pressure to the fabric so that the feed dogs can grab the fabric? On the top left side of the machine, there is probably either a dial or a push-type button. That would most likely be the pressure adjustment. The tighter that is set, the harder the pressure the presser foot will apply and the more the feed dogs will grab the fabric.

Check that the feed dogs are in the "up" position so they will pull the fabric through the machine. Are the feed dogs actually moving forward, raising above the needle plate, pulling toward the back of the machine, and then dropping below the needleplate before moving forward again? If not, then the problem could be with the feed dogs.

Your machine appears to be a mechanical model. If so, it could be the machine needs a good over-all cleaning and oiling--a couple drops of fresh, good quality sewing machine oil every place that metal rubs on metal (no plastic parts, belts...). Feed dogs are frequently affected when the sewing machine does not receive regular maintenance.

The jagged teeth on sewing plate are not moving to move the material forward. U will have to look under the machine to check out the mechanism that is supposed to move them and find the part that is the cause of no transmission of power to the teeth assembly.

Bernina 1130 feed dog does not move fabric, the dog just moves up and down


This problem maybe cause by the stepping motor being sealed or the main board problem. Please go to your local sewing machine mechanic.

Bernina 1130 feed dogs won't feed fabric


On a Bernina 1130 the power on-off knob and the feed dog raise and lower knob look similar and are next to each other on the end of the machine, making it easy to lower the dog assembly entirely, without realizing it. Make sure you didn't accidentally lower the entire feed dog assembly by turning the feed dog knob: you can tell as you turn it if the dogs are up or down. On the Bernina 1130 the knob, like the power should be in the horizontal position to be working both feed and power.
